The Ribbon Carousel Hops with Kraftin' Kimmie's Krew

Hey there, good morning! Today some of the Ribbon Carousel's design team is having a blog hop with the members of Kraftin' Kimmie's team. We all exchanged stamps for ribbons and we're going to showcase how we've put them together to make some fun and, hopefully, inspirational cards! I received a new release stamp from the current Birthday Trinkets set. Here's how I paired it with some textiled eye candy, aka Ribbon Carousel ribbon:


I started with a plain white base and then border punched in both black and white a Arch Scallop design. I shadowed the black behind the white and attached it to my card with dimensionals. I added pearls to the center of the wheel designs. I then layered a length of 1.5" Black/Grey/White Woven Checked Wired Ribbon and then, because I wanted to add a little spice of color, I overlayed a strip of 5/8" Burgundy Satin Pleated Ribbon followed by a small strip of pearls.  The focal panel consists of 3 Circle Nestabilities and one Lacey Circle Nestabilities. I adorned two of the circles with some liquid pearls and popped up one layer with some dimensionals.
Did you know that you could win some fine prizes by leaving just a little blog love?
Check out the details below:

The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to the store and Kraftin' Kimmie will be giving away a winner's choice of 1 stamp set or 3 individual stamps!  The winner of the GC will be revealed on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog and the winner of the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps will be announced on the Ribbon Carousel's blog!


Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
